I live in a country that we don’t celebrate Christmas. Our new year is Nowruz. But since winter is around the corner I decided to write a blog about a bunch of mangas. Mangas that have a Christmasy theme. Christmas, snow, and winter. I seriously love winter and snow. Snow makes me feel different emotions; sadness and happiness.

Let’s start this blog with a rather different manga. This manga isn’t your typical romance manga. When I saw it has sci-fi in the genre I got really interested. The story is about a happy princess named Giselle. She is the princess of an empire that is mostly covered in snow but is famous for its androids. These androids are human-like and they are used as maids and soldiers. Giselle has a friend named Nero who is a genius. He made an Android who looks exactly like Giselle. The king, father of Giselle, loves war and power. When he found out about the android, he took advantage of the situation. He decided to keep the android since she didn’t have feelings and get rid of her own daughter. He told Giselle that she has to marry a prince of an empire that is in the middle of power. The rest of the story is about Giselle, Nero and how they stop the king and actually get together. This story was completely different than other mangas I’ve read. At first, I was confused but I later I completely understood what’s going on. The story seemed like ”snow white with red hair” but the roles were referred and we had androids here. The art was pretty good and I actually like the character designs and the dresses. Some parts felt rushed and some parts I seriously got confused but rather than that the art was pretty good. I feel like this manga could have more chapters but mangaka decided to do it in 49 pages. Overall, I really liked this manga.

Yukionna Gensou

chapters; 5

genre; romance, josei, supernatural 

author; Ikori Andou

Before talking about this manga I should state that this manga contains sexual content. Anyways let’s start. “Yukionna Gensou” is about a woman named Yuki. She is a snow woman. She looks for love and marrying a human forever. Human love makes her warm. If she gets cold and stops being in a mutual relationship she will so cold that it’ll kill the other person. For decades now no matter how hard she looks for a loyal and good husband, she fails. When she leaves a partner after a sudden snow every memory of her disappears and no one remembers her. Even her name disappears from the family register. The story of this manga is really unique and I seriously loved it. The story is really deep and I’m pretty sure the author could write more volumes but she didn’t. Since this deep story only has 5 chapters some parts felt rushed and I actually got confused. I still don’t understand what exactly happened in the end. Other than that the rest of the story was truly lovable. You may ask why this manga is in this blog. Yuki means snow and it’s like she is the reason it snows. Whenever she gets broken a sudden snow starts. She is also as pale and white as snow. The art is extremely gorgeous as well. I kept staring at each page. Everything is detailed. Backgrounds look really nice and the characters and character designs look realistic and beautiful. I seriously love how she draws the face, especially the eyes. The eyes aren’t your typical romance sparkly eyes. They seem empty and soulless just like how our main character is. Our main character is looking for love and without it she is empty. I really recommend this manga.

Wasureyuki

This one-shot seriously made me amazed. The story is about a boy named Tomo. He has never had a good winter. He seriously hates winters. All he remembers about winter is bad things. Another thing he seriously hates is annoying girls and girls who cry a lot. Despite hating such girls there is a girl named Miyako, who always annoys Tomo, which Tomo actually does help. Tomo is really harsh and means to Miyako but still helps her. Just like any other horrible sad winter, this year’s winter is gonna be horrible for Tomo because not only his parents are getting a divorce but Miyako is moving away as well. He keeps acting he is happy that Miyako is leaving but the truth is something else. Let me be honest the story of this manga made me think this is one of those mangas that the boy hates the girl but falls for her but I was wrong. This manga is different and the story isn’t anything you all think. I’m not gonna spoil it for you guys so read this short one-shot. It only has 32 pages so it will only take a few minutes. The art is actually gorgeous and I didn’t see any rushed panels. There weren’t any detailed backgrounds since this one-shot is mostly focused on characters. I wish the Mangaka drew some snowy detailed backgrounds.

Christmas Candy

chapters; 1

genre; drama, shoujo, romance

author; Hisa Kyoumachi

The story is about a girl named Mika who is heartbroken when her boyfriend Kouhei breaks up with her, telling her he loves someone else. Mika asks Kouhei for one last date on Christmas Day and Kouhei accepts. When they meet up Mika tells him she wants to go to their junior high. When they go there Mika gives Kouhei her last gift and runs away not knowing what really is happening. I won’t spoil the ending but I will just say it has a good ending. The story was mostly rushed and I think the way the Mangaka told the story was better if it had more chapters. Even though the story wasn’t that good I still got touched. I felt the urge to cry, I didn’t but I still felt like I’m gonna cry. The art is gorgeous, especially the eyes. The eyes are big and actually hold a lot of feelings and passion. I seriously loved the art. Backgrounds were also detailed which made me adore the art more. This manga only has 43 pages and it’s worth the read.

Omoide no Tsuzuku-saki

chapters; 1

genre; romance, shoujo 

author; Yuuko Inari

I seriously adored this one-shot. It made me laugh, smile and actually hate the fact there is no Christmas in my country. The story is about a girl named Hina who is dating her childhood friend older by 3 years, Kousuke. Their anniversary is on Christmas Eve so that day is really important to Hina but this year Kousuke has to work more shifts. The rest of the story is about Rina and her lonely day. Hina’s character reminded me of myself. The way she over thought even looked like the way I overthink. Everything about this short one-shot is lovable. The story is heartwarming. The characters are adorable just like any other shoujo manga. The MC, Hina, is a really strong girl so that made me like her a lot. Let’s not start about the art. The art looks gorgeous. Characters are drawn flawlessly and their anatomy, face, hair, clothes and etc are just amazing. The sceneries are kinda detailed and looks beautiful. This one-shot is really short so I can’t say anymore or it will be spoiled. READ IT.

Hagoromo Mishin

chapters; 6

genre; romance, josei, supernatural

author; Yuki Kodama

I seriously loved this manga. A beautiful love story between a swan and human on a snowy day. The story is about a college student named Yoichi. Yoichi loves bridges and his dream is to design one himself. One day while he was looking at a bridge he noticed a swan is stuck in it. He saved the swan. That night a beautiful mysterious girl came to his house and told him she is the swan he saved and now she is his wife and she will do anything to be helpful to him. He couldn’t believe his eyes and ears and the rest of the story is about how he falls in love with her and how love can make people change and work hard. The story was kinda new to me. Other than our main characters there are two other characters which I loved to see more of :(. They, the supportive characters, showed “love changes people.” amazingly. You may find the art weird, at least I found it weird at the beginning but after a chapter or two, it grew on me. Some parts looked gorgeous and the backgrounds were really detailed. The art made the whole thing better. The Mangaka is also the Mangaka of “Kids on the slope” but her art here is different.

Are←Nochi Kareshi

chapters; 4

genre; romance, comedy, shoujo

author; Yuki Shiraishi 

status; completed

”Are←Nochi Kareshi” is about a girl named Kotoko. She is cute and attractive so boys come to her a lot. She is about to introduce her boyfriend at her friend’s Christmas party but exactly on that day, Kotoko finds him kissing another girl and telling Kotoko he has feelings for the other girl. After getting dumped she bumps into her uncool and unfashionable classmate, Kitarou. He helps Kotoko and they actually fall in love. The rest of the manga is about Kotoko being an annoying girl and Kiraou being an airhead. I swear I didn’t enjoy this manga that much. I wish it only one or two chapters because I only enjoyed chapters one and four. I don’t know how to tell you guys, all my thoughts. I seriously think this manga was better off as a one-shot. I didn’t hate this manga but each chapter was like a one-shot. Each chapter had a different story with the same characters. Kotoko kept getting more annoying Page by page. At first, I thought she is a cool main character but when she fell in love with Kitarou, she changed and turned hopeless.  Putting aside the story I really liked the art. I didn’t really notice any detailed backgrounds but the characters were really detailed especially Kotoko’s dresses. I seriously liked how the mangaka draws the eyes. They’re huge but adorable. Other things I liked were Kotoko’s dresses and hair. She looked hella cute.
